God of War 3 takes this one really rather easily, and I don't see it ever being knocked off that perch.

Robot scorpion thing from FF7! Aside from being a pretty cool thing to fight against, it's also a pretty tense battle due to having a time limit to escape the reactor before kablammo time.

Dang, stole mine.



Poseidon 3x. It STILL floors me to this day. It's both horrifying and spectacular. Easily the most epic thing that's ever been conceived in media, gaming or otherwise. That's how you kickoff a game.



I'll never forget the first time the spider dropped down in Ocarina of Time.

I would say 2 times I was mesmerized on a game opening... FF IX and GoW3. Completely unshakable feeling.

Gomorrah in Bayonetta 2 that battle is like a final boss battle for most games so was the boss fight in Vanquish but have to mention Shadow of the Colossus as that changed the dynamic of boss fights in gaming.



From recent memory I'll say Pompy from Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, is a decent challenge for being a first boss, really fun and that music, god that music.

The first one that came to mind when reading the thread's title was Poseidon in God of War 3. That fight is really epic.



Valus, Shadow of the Colossus. Incredible first impression, one of the colossi with the most character and personality, and the fight features the best song in the entire game.
